Security changes in macOS Big Sur and Catalina prevent these versions from accessing your files. These versions were discontinued before Catalina was introduced and are no longer being developed.
If you own one of these versions there are two options:
- Upgrade to the current program version.
- Do not upgrade your Mac operating system.
Some older products will show a warning the first time they run after updating to Catalina or Big Sur. These operating systems added authorization requirements that were not included in older product versions. Use these steps to bypass the warning.
- Open System Preferences, choose the Security & Privacy option and select the General tab.
- Click the lock icon at the lower left and enter your password to unlock the settings.
- Leave this window open in the background.
- Launch the plug-in from Photoshop.
- When you get a warning, click Cancel.
- Go back to the Security & Privacy dialog. You should see an option for Allow Anyway. Click it to proceed.
- There are two plug-in tools used in some applications, so you may need to complete steps 5-6 twice.
- Once complete, the "cannot be verified" dialog will now have an Open option. Click it and the plug-in can be opened.
- Open the plug-in again to ensure that the bypass has worked.
